What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: a different life, an affirmation of life, cyanide, old things, frozen yogurt, pastrami, lobsters, a bloody mary, tiny hot dogs, Indian Ladder, Dan Eaton, a mural, and Brother Al.

Kevin went to a "life-affirming" performance at the Troy Bike Rescue.

Jackie survived a chemical weapon attack from a millipede.

Tim checked out the Historic Albany Architectural Parts Warehouse.

One of Kristi's readers asked about local mini-golf spots.

Ashallann enjoyed some "absolutely amazing" frozen yogurt that evoked a shamrock shake.

Jerry had some "very good" pastrami on a bagel in Troy.

Albany Jane scored fresh lobsters in Cohoes.

Daniel B considered what he doesn't know about the Capital Region.

Steve enjoyed the fantasy-inducing bloody mary at McGeary's.

Mr. Dave created "a Rolf's mini-dog popper."

Emily had a "great lunch" at Indian Ladder Farms' Yellow Rock Cafe.

Amanda wondered if she should have said something to a group of teens in a drug store.

Via David at Friday Puppy, a first-hand account of the Dan Eaton Band (you know, the YNN cooking guy).

I grew up in the Utica area and moved out here in 1998. It really is funny how different the cultures are less than 100 miles away. It's more laid back in the Utica/Syracuse area, and the culture is much more "country" whereas Albany and a lot of the are around it is much more fast paced and has more of a NYC influence. Both are nice places to live, but definitely different vibes.
